Preparations are well underway at the clean room of ISIS launch services in Delft, Netherlands for the cubesats launching under their contracts: http://blog.isilaunch.com/?cat=7

A note of the probable launch time: since the planned 630 km SSO has a LTAN of 10:30, this seems to imply a launch time of roughly ~19:00 UTC, after comparing with the launch of DubaiSat-2 et al. last year (which was aiming at a SSO with LTDN of 10:30).  ;)

Novosti kosmonavtiki now reports that there will be no launch of Dnepr in June.

Novosti kosmonavtiki now reports that there will be no launch of Dnepr in June.

There are conflicting statements out there - http://itar-tass.com/politika/1185187 says da, http://ria.ru/space/20140514/1007760030.html says nyet. Let's see what happens...

But Anik on NK forum denies this information.

All Dual language updates and reference to this launch have been removed from the OFFICIAL ISC Kosmostras website. They were present on the website on Monday, but no longer available as of Thursday.

Somehow looking at the ISIS launch blog I feel that there are at least several cubesats missing (including 1 from Singapore, maybe several from the US) from the payload list. Can someone try to confirm the whole list of payloads?

(They have reached the launch base by May 21, BTW)

11 of them are 3U cubesats from Planet Labs.

Do we have confirmation, that the 11 "Flock-1c" are on board?

Well, they are in Yasny at least.
(I helped pack them up for shipment from San Francisco)

Just a nitpick, but if you're going for correctness the Flock 1c spacecraft don't have "Dove x" designations even though the design is of the Dove class. They are just "Flock 1c xx".  The "Dove x" designation is reserved for Planet Labs' experimental satellites which are usually launched singly or in pairs.

I was told "38 satellites" by ISIS this morning at the Small Satellite Systems & Services symposium, here in Mallorca.

Is there one missing in your list?
